Bubba Nosferatu Gets Giamatti, Waiting for Campbell

Prequel production nearly underway.

by | August 23, 2007 | Comments

In the
"things that sound awesome but can’t possibly be true" department,
Paul Giamatti
is listed in the cast of Bubba Nosferatu. The prequel to
Bubba Ho-Tep

would have
Bruce Campbell
‘s
Elvis Presley battle vampires. But come on, acclaimed thespian Paul Giamatti
would never do a low budget camp movie, right?

"I would
really like to do that," Giamatti revealed. "Did you ever see Bubba Ho-Tep?
Great movie. And that director [Don
Coscarelli
], I love that guy’s movies.  All the

Phantasm
movies and stuff. But we are trying to do it."

A
commitment like that should be money in the bank for Coscarelli, but it turns
out B-movie legend Bruce Campbell himself may be the hold up.

"Bruce
Campbell was waffling around about whether he wants to play Elvis or not again.
So that’s the problem, Giamatti says, "I’m playing Colonel Parker, which will be
great, but you gotta have Elvis and you really want him playing Elvis, so
hopefully we can get him to do it. If not, I’m sure they will try and find
somebody else but I think it’s contingent on whether he’ll do it or not. It’s a
great script, a completely insane script. I would love to do that because I love
[Bubba Ho-Tep]. It’s a great movie."

For
another outrageous Giamatti role, check him out as a family-bound hitman in
Shoot ‘Em Up, opening
September 7.
